    As for the court case, I don’t see how any judge in their right mind would rule in favor of the states at this point

    Not saying T-Mobile is perfect by any means but I do like what they offered the other day especially the internet access for those that normally couldn’t afford it and the inexpensive prepaid.

    Unions are nothing more that the mafia and socialism. Americans should have the right to work without having to pay protection money to a union. T-Mobile needs to remain a free work place. If people want to join a union fine as long as they don’t get extra benefits than a non-union T- Mobile worker. A Union at T- Mobile would only raise the price of service for the customers.

    When I was a kid 70% of the wealth in the USA was owned by 30%.
    Now over 99% of the wealth in the USA is owned by less than 1%.

    In the USA used to be one parent working a full time minimum wage job could support a family of 4.

    There are 26 people in the world who have more assets than the poorest 3.5 billion people.

    I've said for a long long time now, union members need to unionize to protect themselves against union management.

    UAW in the news lately, anyone? Tell me with a straight face that union management does anything other than protecting their own, individual, interests.

    That was NEVER the case.

    Minimum wage was never meant to support a family, and in fact never did. Care to share your source for this tidbit?

    And in fact, taking a reasonable minimum wage away hurts people who want a little extra money.

    Who cares? People that don’t have money don’t hire people. Fact if T-Mobile goes union then the cost of our service goes up and when the union tells them to go on strike they cut wires to disable service like the did with Verizon. This is America and people should not be forced to pay a dirty union to keep their job.

    It's a good thing we're free to care or not care.

    I'm pretty sure DT would heartily counter any offer with a better one.

    JL it's the best thing that's ever happened to T-Mobile USA. He brought it from a deteriorating also ran carrier to a formidable player with the best brand reputation on the verge of closing the customer count disparity with ATT.

    Much of JL's compensation is in stock options. Just look at T-Mobile's share prices from 2012 (~$10) to today (~$80) and you can see why he might want to say, "My job here is done" and move on.

    Where is your source for this? The Federal Reserve doesn't agree.
    iPhone X is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    What? If management would do as they're supposed to.. Unions would not have the need to exist in the first place. There's a reason why the most prosperous times in USA history was when the majority were union, that's dwindled and now look at where the wealth has shifted.. and it's not in your favor

    Not to mention all of the basic labor laws you have now thanks to unions, but hey you are not old enough to know about that i'm sure

    Tell that to those that work at my company but like anything else... there can be bad unions.. but not ALL of them are bad.

    When i was a flight attendant before getting my pilots license.. We had 9.3% match into 401k, $0 health insurance available, highest paid in the industry (could make 10k/mo in about 5yrs if you watched how you moved/built your schedule), etc.. I actually did comparable if not better when comparing actual work hours to pay vs using my degree

    As a pilot.. will not go into that but it's fantastic, and I will NEVER work somewhere without a union again. I could have stayed FA and retired after 15-20yrs quite comfortably if I had chosen to do so.

    I sometimes bristle at his brash statements but there's no doubt he's the face of the turnaround and has done a tremendous job. There must be some huge incentive package for him to turn WW around and he's reaching that cash in age anyway so good for him.

    He brought Tmo this far, there are other talented people to take them the rest of the way - the hard work has all been done.

    Yup. I suspect that if T-Mobile wants to 'keep' him, they'll have to do something. Many CEO's jump after mergers. Not because they have to, but because they accomplished their goal, and are more marketable. Going from building and completing a merge (financially) to actually shifting gears and doing the merge (which can be ugly) is a different role. He can weigh all his options.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    yup. The guy who digs and builds the foundation is never the guy who puts up the cabinets and installs the pulls.
